1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

The food is ready in 5 minutes. It was nearly cold, came frome the micro ofen.
It was very expensive!
All of our group said that this is bad food.
We found an other mexican restaurant on this island which is cheaper and has 100 times better food!
Do not go there!

Thank you for taking time to write this review and as the chef/owner I would like to reply. I would like to assure you we do not microwave any of our dishes at Andoloco. All of our meals are prepared in traditional Mexican methods. I do wonder if you ordered and you food came in only 5 minutes how could it be cold? That is very fast service for an international restaurant in Thailand. Come try us again as I assure you we didnt deserve a 1 star.
Bon Provecho!

“Never ever”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

One meal Was wrong, the other meal they forgot.... And after a 1/2 hour we have to order it again.
Both meals was terrible, we couldn't eat it. The sauces and cremes at the table were very slippery and full of, I thought it was glue!

It's the first time that I give so an bad review here in tripadvisor

I am sorry you had an error with your order. We work very hard in the kitchen but occasionally mistakes do happen. I on the other hand would like to defend the 3 sauces we serve on the table. 2 of the sauces you can not find anywhere in Thailand so you are lucky to be able to enjoy them on an island 12,000 miles from Mexico. I personally ship Valentinas and El Yucateteco XXXX Habanero all the way from Mexico and our house sauce is made with Chipotle and Arbol Chilis I also ship from Mexico. People who know and love Mexican food know these sauces and can come and enjoy them everyday at Andoloco. These are authentic real Mexican hot sauces.
Bon Provecho!

Great range of food for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. Authentic Mexican taste, fresh veggies, and the sweet potato fries are to die for!

“Sitting at the bar drinking a bucket, eating tacos, playing pool, sipping tequila”

I spent 14 day on Ko Pha Ngan and a lot of it at the bar at Andolocos. The food was awesome, the staff were very accommodating and the drinks, outstanding. They made me feel at home and were on a first name basis from the minute I walked through the door. Can't wait to return for a fish taco and a Mangler.

I'm not the biggest fan of Mexican food but my boyfriend loves it so being the caring girlfriend that I am I decided we would try here because of the good reviews. Boy am I glad we did!!! The food was out of this world! Service was amazing and the atmosphere is lovely and peaceful. Eat here, you will not regret it!
